UPDATE: 2/24/14
The following story was revealed to be an elaborate hoax orchestrated by a group of radio DJ interns. Justin Bieber is welcome in Atlanta. Read here for TheWrap’s complete update.


Justin Bieber will face some very angry neighbors if he decides to move to an affluent Atlanta-area community.

As word spreads that the legally-challenged pop star may be shopping for mansions in Buckhead, its community group plans to stage a protest on Monday morning.

Justin Bieber‘s relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community,” the Buckhead Neighborhood Coalition wrote on Facebook.

It continued, “Some can’t even let their children play in the driveway without fear; he has raced vehicles under the influence, before. What’s to say he won’t do it again? As a home owner down the street from this residence, one can assume many people will be contacting real estate agents soon enough.”

At the time this article was posted, more than 120 people had signed on to attend a protest Monday morning in front of a property that’s currently for sale and possibly being eyed by Bieber.

It’s tough to argue that Bieber would be a good addition to the community. He’s reportedly charged with a felony after throwing eggs at a neighbor’s home in Calabasas, Calif., which caused more than $20,000 worth of damage. He’s also battling DUI charges in Florida.

But, a few Atlanta residents are sticking up for the pop star.

“This is ridiculous. Leave him alone, he’d be a fine neighbor,” wrote David M. Lilenfeld in response to the Facebook posting. “I’m a resident of Buckhead, and he is welcome here. I know (unfortunately) plenty of neighbors w/DUIs, they just aren’t famous so it doesn’t make the news and so you don’t know about them.”

Atlanta resident Adam Gibson pointed out, “Rock Band the Black Crowes lived on Blackland , bothered no one and they were a pot heads. Beiber won’t bother anyone. [sic]”
